Today in America one out of every two marriages will end in divorce. Unfortunately divorce does not only effect those who are married; it also enters into the lives of the children. Over 40% of our nation's children will experience divorce in their lifetime. Divorce is a traumatic event that can leave permanent scars on a child both emotionally and spiritually. Fortunately, as parents and teachers with the right tools, we can help to prevent those scars and help our children in successfully coping with divorce. My primary goals in developing this guideline were to provide useful information for parents and teachers regarding divorce and it effects on children, to provide educational activities about divorce in order to encourage the understanding and study of divorce beyond the production of "In Pieces" and to give parents and teachers the tools and knowledge necessary to successfully help children through divorce. It is my hope that I have accomplished my goals.
